Arranmore

I stopped by Arranmore today to get in the Halloween spirit and was amazed by how detailed and well… spooky the place was- complete with haunted mansion, deserted buildings and lots of creepy sounds. If you visit, I defintely suggest grabbing the flashlight offered at the landing point, switching your graphics over to the sim windlight and exploring in all of its spooky glory. You won’t be disapointed!

As for new releases today, Just Because has this lovely, texture change skirt at N21 and Nena Janus of League released these amazing strapped heels at her mainstore. I love, love that they are for the mid-feet- we haven’t seen nearly enough of those lately! The skirt comes in two version of fourteen colors each and the pumps are sold in singles, mini packs of four, or fatpack with twelve shoe and sixteen strap options.

Desert Oasis

Things are heating up with the new round of Uber! The theme is Sahara and the new releases this round are definitely perfect for the hot Summer months. I’m wearing this new dress from Tetra, and I absolutely love the light, airy fit. It’s available for the Maitreya and SLink bodies and what’s great is, you can choose to wear your alpha or be a bit naughty and enjoy a slightly transparent version by keeping it off.

Either way, this versatile dress is great on its own, as a beach cover-up or even just to lounge around by the pool. The dress comes in twelve solid colors, or thirteen (pineapple print) if you buy the bonus fatpack for just L$999.

LeLutka Updates

So as pretty much everyone knows at this point, LeLutka has recently released a new update to their mesh heads and it is by far the biggest one to date. The main addition, of course, are expressions. Finally, right!?

The semi-newly designed HUD features some additional options. While the button to part your lips may have disappeared, it has been replaced by a teeth visibility feature, and the ‘Express Yourself’ button which, once pressed, will reveal a panel that allows you the options to change eye, brow and mouth expressions. With over 84 combinations, these expressions offer a lot more in the way of customization and I, for one, love the mouth expressions. Though the smile can err on the edge of creepy, it is definitely more versatile for those that aren’t so much a fan of the pouty expression that the default lip shape offers.

Overall, this long-awaited release has definitely pushed LeLutka into a new category for mesh heads, and while I am still hopeful that a softer, more fuller lash option (maybe more than one) will become available in the near future (as opposed to the chunky ones,) I am definitely satisfied for the time being.

Beach Bummin’

I decided to branch out from my go-to skin creators when I happened upon this new release from Lara Hurley. I saw Iza at Summerfest and though I decided against the darker tones offered, I found myself at the mainstore to see what else was available and lo’ and behold, I met Alena. She’s youthful, fresh and is available for the LeLutka Mesh Heads. Even better is this ‘rose pale’ tone, which I find charming and oh so girly. For my first time wearing a Lara Hurley skin, I have to say I am suitably impressed. The textures have the almost porcelain smoothness that I’ve come to love from Aida, but the eyes- oh, the eyes! They have some amazing highlights and shadows and the slight purple glow that Alena has really sets off my favorite green eyes.

Of course, I couldn’t not show off some more of my Summerfest finds, but I also happened upon this new dress from Tee*fy at N21 and as soon as I saw it, I knew it would be mine. In my eagerness, I wound up paying $L230 for the demo, but after contacting Azure over the mis-labeled demo, all was well. Did I mention that she is a sweetheart? <3

Fresh for Summer

So, even though I’ve been out with an awful cold or some such thing for a few days now, my blogging heart was having some majoy shopping withdrawals. So, I sneaked on in and managed to grab a few great new pieces from the Kustom9 and Shiny Shabby events for one of my favorite, and classic boho inspired looks.

This new hair from Tableau Vivant is also right up my alley, with long, luscious locks in a flowing style. The original version comes with a texture changeable scarf, but I managed to modify it in exchange for a pretty flower crown instead.

The weather here has been insane, already in the 90s! I hope the rest of you are as ready for summer!
